Rep. Alan Grayson (Fla.) Wednesday became the second congressional Democrat to call for White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs’ ouster, using colorful moniker to describe him.
Gibbs raised the ire of liberals Tuesday when he told The Hill that some left-wing critics of the Obama administration “ought to be drug tested.”
Grayson, who is known for his boisterous comments, called Gibbs “Bozo the Spokesman.”
“I don’t think he should resign, I think he should be fired. He’s done a miserable job,” Grayson said on MSNBC. “People I know refer to him as ‘Bozo the Spokesman.'”
On Tuesday, Grayson’s colleague on the Congressional Progressive Caucus, Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) said that Gibbs’ resignation would be “fair” considering the “inflammatory” nature of his comments.
